Aston Villa 0-0 Burnley: Point moves Clarets out of Premier League relegation zone

Aston Villa were held to a goalless draw by a resolute Burnley despite dominating for large periods at Villa Park.

Both Villa and Burnley headed into the game on the back of impressive weekend away wins at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal respectively.

However, the home side just could not find a way past a determined Burnley defence, and especially their England goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Villa twice came close to making the breakthrough in the first half, only for Pope to turn Anwar El Ghazi's curling free-kick on to the bar, before Kortney Hause headed against the woodwork from close range.

As a result, Dean Smith's team stay 11th in the Premier League, while the visitors move out of the relegation zone with this point.
